About Scott Haley

Formerly I have been a working cowboy, a high school and college science instructor, an independent environmental regulatory compliance consultant, and a hazardous materials specialist for Sacramento County. I started making art, specifically pen & ink drawings, in 1979; about eight years ago, in 2006, I switched to abstract and impressionistic painting. I started photography in the mid-1980s, stopped after a few years, and then took it up again in 2008. I've been a full-time artist since 2009.

The original inspiration of my passion for art came with an elective course in Aesthetics at Colorado State University in the early '60s. The professor who taught that course stressed over and over: beauty is in the eye of the beholder...100%. Also--- perceptions change with time and events. A good example would be: when Jackson Pollock first started painting his 'drip' or 'pour' pieces, the so-called art experts said that those works looked like 'matted spaghetti'. They deemed them of little or no value. [Google 'Lavender Mist'.] Much later, one of his 'matted spaghetti' pieces sold for millions of dollars. Pollock is recognized as a giant in abstract expressionism. It's all in the eye of the beholder.

My favorite painters are (in no particular order): Charles Russell, Claude Monet, Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Willem de Kooning, Perle Fine, Mark Rothko, Robert Motherwell, Joan Miro, Franz Kline, Allen Lehman, Paul Klee, Erik von Ploennies, Susan Sadoury, and Maxim Grunin.

Abstract Artist Scott Haley Offers More Variety In Prints

Bonham, TX - August 18th, 2011

In deference to the bad economy, abstract expressionist Scott Haley now is offering for sale smaller (and thus less expensive) prints of his work. Responding to inquiries, he also is offering a much wider variety of print sizes on most of his paintings.

Abstract Expressionist Scott Haley Debuts A New Painting

Bonham, TX - July 11th, 2011

Scott Haley's newest work, "Wolf in a Storm", demonstrates the intricacy of some abstract paintings while also showing the simple beauty of the genre. The piece embodies his often utilized theme of Nature and contains a wolf's head that is almost representational art. Given that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, some collectors perhaps will not care for this particular work; others, however, undoubtedly will grasp its appeal.
